Thursday Book Discussion: How the Word Is Passed by Clint Smith

Meeting Rooms A and B Combined
Thursday, Sep 29, 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Join us for a book discussion of How the Word is Passed by Clint Smith.

A deeply researched and transporting exploration of the legacy of slavery and its imprint on centuries of American history, How the Word Is Passed illustrates how some of our country's most essential stories are hidden in plain view—whether in places we might drive by on our way to work, holidays such as Juneteenth, or entire neighborhoods like downtown Manhattan, where the brutal history of the trade in enslaved men, women, and children has been deeply imprinted.

Books will be available for checkout at the library 4 weeks prior to the discussions.
